Contact lenses are now easier to use and more comfortable than ever before. There is also an incredible variety now available – contacts can be used for all kinds of vision correction and to help with conditions like myopia and astigmatism. Finding the best lenses for you may seem like a challenge but we’ll be with you step-by-step to make sure you get the right ones.
EASY TO USE
FOR FULL TIME OR PART TIME WEAR
Contact Lens Assessments
Your first appointment with us will be a contact lens assessment, which is where we gather all the information we need to fit you with lenses that are right for you. The assessment will include the calculation of your prescription, tests to determine your eye health and a discussion of how you want to use contact lenses. Finally, your optometrist will explain fitting and provide you with their recommendation for your contact lenses.
The Different Types of Contact Lenses
We source a variety of contact lenses so all of our patients can find an option that suits their lifestyle. The most common kind of lenses are soft lenses which come in daily or monthly disposable options. For some eye types, rigid gas-permeable lenses are more appropriate. There are also lenses designed for certain conditions, like toric lenses for people with astigmatism. Whatever your health and lifestyle requirements we’ll ensure that you get the right kind of lenses.
FOR CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS
Myopia Control Contact Lenses
As part of a specialist range of contact lenses, we offer myopia-control contact lenses for children and teens. These lenses are designed to slow down the progression of myopia or shortsightedness. Because children’s eyes are still developing, myopia can get rapidly worse if not managed, so finding a myopia management option that works for your child is vital.
Aftercare and Advice
Even if you have been wearing contact lenses for years it is important to have your eyes regularly examined. Aftercare appointments check up on your ocular health and your prescription to confirm that your lenses are still working correctly for you. It’s also a chance to ask for any advice or help that you might need with your contacts.
